Description of problem:
Using the network ftp install for RedHat 9 i choosed the ftp.sunet.se since it 
is the closest to me.

But after a while the Package Installation window hanged..
The progressbar for installing a package was stucked at 37% and got me 
It seemd in the console at ALT+F3 that the ftp server denied the connection 
because there where too many connections.

And the installer did not handle or promt me about it.
I had to start all ower from scratch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use a ftp server like ftp.sunet.se or someone else that locksout if there 
are too many ftp users
2. use network/ftp installation
3. install and fill the ftp server up so the RedHat computer recives a denial 
of login since there are too many ftp users connected.

Actual Results:  Hang of installation

Expected Results:  It should have handled the ftp servers responce that there 
are too many ftp users connected and offerd an promt where i can change the 
ftp site to a diffrent site so i dont have to restart from the beginning.

I believe that this should be resolved with newer releases.  Please
reopen if this isn't the case.
